: WDRTF Dell CPU Heatsink / Fan Assembly XPS/Dimension Computers & Accessories

Once your system is upgraded to a new processor, it will be about Dell XPSDimension up to date as any system using that processor at least as far as the CPU, motherboard, and memory performance are concerned. I've listed some details on parts I used and some before and after benchmarks here. I've received some benchmarks as well as details on the parts used from another upgrader who moved from the original Pentium II MHz processor on his system to a Pentium III Click here to view.

So, how do I go about doing this? You will probably want Dell BIOS version A09 or later when upgrading the CPU actually, earlier versions may work, but I would advise upgrading because there are some possibly important fixes included in later versions Dell XPSDimension.

I would recommend you upgrade to at least version A12, as there are a number of potentially important fixes in that version. Your system will probably redetect a bunch of the motherboard resources when your system Dell XPSDimension up again after upgrading, don't be alarmed.

If you don't want to have to worry about this, and don't think you need any of the fixes in A13, you could try version A12, which used to be available on Dell's FTP site here but isn't anymore. You can view a directory of all available versions herethe ones for the R-series all begin with XPSR right now only A13 is on there though. However, Bob Matthews' page does have a copy of A12 Dell XPSDimension for download. I don't know if anybody has tried it though.

You have to remove Dell XPSDimension one jumper from the motherboard and reboot with the flash disk in the drive - there will be no video during the flash process. Going back to an earlier BIOS version seemed to prevent this.


This doesn't seem to be an issue with Coppermine processors, however, because it doesn't seem to realize that the CPU is a Pentium III and lets you boot up. Finally, if you have a Sound Blaster Live! Apparently old versions of 3dfx Voodoo3 video card drivers can cause problems with newer processors as well, if you have one of those cards you should get the latest drivers from 3dfx. Parts needed - Pentium III upgrade: Dell XPSDimension the newer Coppermine processors will work, the older Katmai processors will not except perhaps the MHz one because they consume more power than this board's CPU voltage regulator can supply. See the main page for info on how to tell which kind a processor is. However, the difference in average power consumption is rather marginal, so I don't think this is very likely to cause a problem - and many people have put in MHz to 1 GHz processors with no problems reported yet.

This doesn't mean it won't work on others, and many people have put these in with no problems.

The use of the newer 1 GHz and Dell XPSDimension. They have increased power draw and thermal design power, which may make their use in these machines risky because of potentially excessive demands on the motherboard's voltage regulator.


If you did want to use one Dell XPSDimension these D0-stepping chips, you would need a Dell XPSDimension adapter. I do have one report of a successful 1. See the review of this adapter linked to on the main page for more information. See the main page for info on how to know which ones these are. The fastest bus speed these machines support is MHz. You can use two types of processors with these systems.

Dell XPSDimension Because of this, a slot-to-socket adapter, commonly called a "slocket" is needed to install one of these processors. In this case you don't need a slocket adapter. See the main page for more detailed information on installation.

Parts needed - Celeron processor upgrade: The most conservative option with a Celeron is to set the voltage and FSB jumpers on the slocket to automatic, this will cause it and your system to run at a the CPU's standard FSB speed: To make it run at this speed, you'll likely have to increase the voltage setting on the slocket i. Your processor should have a code marked on it starting with S the S-code. You can look up your processor's S-code in the Intel Celeron Specification Update available here to see what stepping it is. I recommend starting at about 1. Use the lowest possible voltage that allows the Dell XPSDimension to run properly, as increasing voltage also increases heat production and possibly shortens chip life.

There are no in-between FSB settings on this motherboard. Note that although some slockets may have a MHz FSB jumper position, this motherboard does not support that speed. What voltages Celeron CPUs with default voltages of 1. However, you should take the higher standard voltage into account when setting an initial testing voltage for overclocking. Some slockets don't have these, they can't be used for overclocking. There have been a number of people who have been able to run a Celeron overclocked to MHz with the processor being quite stable. It seems that sometimes the SisSoft Sandra utility incorrectly detects the FSB speed when you overclock one of these processors.

Dell Dimension - Wikipedia

I do have concerns Dell XPSDimension how much power these processors consume when overclocked - obviously Intel's specs don't contain this Dell XPSDimension It may or may not be too much for this board to handle safely.
